    Yes. But unfortunately the laws of physics will dictate how large the traps can get and still work. So while theorectically you could have a 1 foot sized traps...they won't close (at least not with enough speed to catch anything).

    If it was a foot big it could catch small birds... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_k_ani_32.gif[/img] It wouldn't need to be that fast if a bird went right in and triggered the trap. Think of the nutrients it would get from that... actually it probably couldn't digest much of it.

    Even if the traps didn't close at all, I bet you still wouldn't want to put your hand in there.

    I'd like to gene-splice a sundew and a VFT together to make a sundew with VFT traps on the ends of its leaves. Hmm...

    I don't know
    I don't know
    I have so, so many strong reservations
    Should I go and perform mutilations?

    Actually, I just polinated a flytrap flower with Drosera spatulata pollen...and it looks like it's producing seed....

    There was a master breeder back in the 70's working on creating some super sized VFT's using gamma radiation and gene splicing. He got a reportedly HUGE all green form that he was feeding rats to. He was keeping it all hush hush. He dropped out of contact about 1980 and no one has heard from him since.
